Bayer HealthCare, Myerstown: Newest PAS-X Version Goes Live

The Go-Live of the Bayer HealthCare MES Core 2 system in Myerstown, USA, in January 2012 marked an important milestone for the development of the MES Core system for Bayer HealthCare.

16 August 2012 - Myerstown is the first Bayer HealthCare production facility on the deployment roadmap to start operations with the enhanced BHC MES Core 2 system. The system is based on the latest IT landscape with a cluster and Citrix environment and it also integrates with the central BHC SAP ERP system.

The installation represents a full-blown MES system for about 250 concurrent users with a complex automatic Weighing & Dispensing system and an underlying weighing system by AZO for the manufacturing of vitamin tablets. In the next step Performance Management will be rolled out for Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) functions to the site (the so-called Production Control Center).

"With this successful first rollout of the BHC MES Core 2 system, Bayer HealthCare has accomplished another important step in implementing our global MES program," says Dr. Till Hagemann, Manager BHC Global MES Program. "Now, we are looking forward to continuing the rollout at the other sites on the BHC Core Rollout Roadmap."
